Easter Nest

We do love Christmas – pine trees, door wreaths, and pine garlands hanging on the fireplace. We even start to decorate our houses as early as November. You transform your house into something magical!

But don’t forget about celebrating Spring, and especially Easter. The first daffodils, the fresh green grass, white cherry blossom trees… the start of a new year!

So it would be a treat for me to show you how to make an Easter nest table arrangement, which you can use as your table centrepiece.

To make the nest base you will need wire ring, moss, reel wire, pussy willows and twigs.

Entwine the moss around the metal ring and add branched twigs. Then entwine the pussy willow twigs around the circle to make a nest base.

To give some colour to our twiggy nest we use spring bulbs and a selection of cut flowers such as bright yellow narcissus and paper whites. To keep them fresh you embed mini glass bottles filled with water, so you can keep changing the flowers on your wreath.

There you have your own Easter table arrangement. Good Luck!

Sunflower Sunshine

Back in May we did wedding flowers for a lovely couple Ellie and Rich.

Ellie loves sunflowers! She wanted to have them everywhere – buttonhole, bouquets and table arrangements. It looked perfect with blue bridesmaids dresses. For Ellie we made posy bouquet with petite white flowers like ranunculus, sweet peas, spray roses and scented freesia. Groomsmen wore sunflower buttonholes and Rich matched the bride’s bouquet – freesia and spray rose buttonhole.

After puzzling out how to pin the buttonholes, the boys headed to St Paul’s Cathedral – the most stunning place to exchange your vows.

At the venue – The Stationers’ Hall – we made yellow and purple flower circles with hurricane candle holders inside. The perfect centrepieces if you are looking for a low arrangement.

Big Thank You to Lina and Tom Photography for letting us share their beautiful work.

“It has been a real pleasure working with you and thank you for your patience in explaining some quite basic points to this couple of wedding-novices!  You really took the time to listen to what we want and helped us to hone our thinking, which meant we got the perfect flowers for us.  The arrangements were gorgeous – the sunflowers in particular were stunning and I loved that you were able to incorporate this relatively informal flower into the gorgeous pedestals in arrangements worthy of quite a grand venue!  I wish you’d been there to hear the gasps when we handed out the flowers to the mothers – the whole room was impressed!  Please pass our thanks on to the rest of your team as well.  We met a few florists in the run up to the wedding, but you were the one we “clicked” with and I’m so glad that we went with you.  We will definitely be recommending you to others and of course using the shop whenever we need flowers for other occasions too!”

Wreaths For Different Occasions

Wreaths go way back in time and started from the ancient times where people used them for many occasions. So why use them today if they are so back in time…? Well the answer to that is because wreaths today are more exciting with different textures then they were in the ancient times. We have wreaths for all sorts of occasions such as weddings, funerals, Christmas, religious ceremonies and anything else you could think of.

Funeral Wreaths – Eternal Life After Death

Funeral wreaths are more modern and used today. They have a meaning of eternal life after death. Many different colours and materials could be used in a funeral wreath depending on what the deceased may have liked. They are beautiful arrangements and would bring beautiful meaning when given as a tribute.

Wreaths could also be used for different religious occasions and is very popular during the Christmas season as people use it in all sorts of ways. Again the wreath has a meaning of eternal life as it has no beginning and no end to it…quite interesting isn’t it? They look beautiful almost anywhere during these special occasions, so I advice start decorating with those stunning, meaningful wreaths.

Many different meanings and looks are bought to us through floral wreaths. Not only are wreaths built up with flowers, but the could also be designed with different materials such as vegetables, fruit, twigs or anything else interesting you could think of.
